Howard Jones
Famed musician Howard Jones took the stage first with cherished tunes like “Pearl in the Shell,” “Everlasting Love,” and “Life in One Day.” UK Synthpop electronic group OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark) followed the energetic performance with their famed experimental recordings such as “Enola Gay,” “Secret,” and “If You Leave.”

Additionally, Derek Stevens, CEO and Founder of the D Las Vegas and DLVEC, greeted the DLVEC guests and invited them to an official after-party at the D.

Anticipated act Barenaked Ladies opened their set with a medley of chart-topping songs from classic rappers who will be performing at The Art of Rap tour at DLVEC tonight. Howard Jones also joined the band on stage for a collaboration. The excited crowed danced to the band’s hits "One Week" "If I had a $1,000,000,” and "Pinch Me," and were amazed with another surprise medley with songs from superstars Rihanna, Celine Dion and Drake.

Located at the corner of Third St. and Carson Ave. across from the D Las Vegas, the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center can accommodate up to 15,000 guests and features state-of-the-art sound and lighting. The open-air design is inviting to both tourists and locals and offers the perfect spot for concerts, conventions and other large-scale events. Embracing the uninhibited spirit of Downtown Las Vegas, the new venue will play host to a line-up of curated events including premier concerts, food festivals and more. The venue also recently announced that is the first entertainment arena in Las Vegas to accept Bitcoin as currency.

  1. They have a few large flat screens in the hall but not too many to make this a sports bar. It's all about the beer at Chicago event venues here. Long lines of taps are behind each bar sporting an impressive array of craft libations.
